The branding you choose will make your guide pop! Using a distinct guide icon and an eye-catching cover image will also help your guide look unique & polished.
When you create a guide, you will be prompted to upload a Guide Icon and Guide Cover image. However, you can skip this step and upload these images later.
The Guide Icon
The guide icon is a 120 pixels wide, 100 pixels tall .JPG or .PNG file. Due to the small image size, we suggest using a simple logo without much text. If your guide icon doesn't fit the 120x100 dimensions exactly, don't worry! We have a built-in image editor that allows you to resize, center, and/or crop the image you upload into Builder.
In the Guidebook app and in Branded Multi-guide apps, the guide icon will appear on the app home screen, on top of the cover image.
The cover image is a 640 pixels wide, 240 pixels tall .JPG or .PNG file. This is a great place for a banner with information about the event and/or the venue. If your cover image doesn't fit the 640x240 dimensions exactly, don't worry! We have a built-in image editor that allows you to resize, center, and/or crop the image you upload into Builder.
In the Guidebook app and in Branded Multi-guide apps, the cover image will appear on the app home screen, underneath the guide icon.
Across all platforms, the cover image is a header image across the top of the General Info page, and a greyed-out version of the cover image will appear at the top of the drawer navigation menu. If you have the Interact feature enabled, users will see a greyed-out version of the cover image at the top of the feed as well.
If you choose to promote your app or guide with a landing page, a zoomed-in version of your cover image will appear on that landing page. For example: https://guidebook.com/app/cmsc2015/
To upload your guide branding in Builder, click on "Build guide" from your guide dashboard. Then either click on the General Info module, or click on "Edit guide details" in the bottom-left corner of the guide-building screen. Then, click the "Branding" tab.
To edit the guide icon, click on the blue pencil in the middle of the window. To edit the cover image, click on the blue pencil towards the top-left corner.
The blue pencil button will open a file browser for you to choose an image file (.png or .jpg) from your computer. Choose the image you would like to upload, and then use the slider to increase/decrease the size of your file as needed. You can click & drag the image or use the "center" & "original size" buttons to orient the icon as you would like.
Don't forget to click "crop and save"! Then click the "save" button in the Branding tab of Guide Details.
